Jeanne Heuving Publishes New Book: The Transmutation of Love and Avant-Garde Poetics


IAS faculty member Jeanne Heuving published a new book, The Transmutation of Love and Avant-Garde Poetics, in the Modern and Contemporary Poetics series, co-edited by Charles Bernstein and Hank Lazer, at the University of Alabama Press. The book examines how the writing of sexual love undergoes a radical revision by avant-garde poets in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The book, in the words of one reviewer is “sharply written and superbly argued” and “should alter the way American avant-garde poetry is read.”  A book launch will take place on Saturday, June 11, 3:00-4:30, at Open Books in Seattle.
